Institute seminar winter 2022/23

The institute seminar series of the Institute of Sustainable Economic Development at BOKU aims to foster the exchange of knowledge within and beyond the institute. Institute members and external speakers will present their work during these bi-weekly events, allowing time for in-depth discussion.

The seminar will be presented in two different formats: format A will provide an opportunity for the presentation of research. Format B is intended to foster an exchange within the institute on a more strategic level.

The seminars take place on Tuesdays at 11:00-12:00 a.m. It's planned to hold the seminars in presence and digital (hybrid) in Room EG-04 at Guttenberghaus.

If you wish to attend one of the seminars virtually, please contact inwe(at) and you will receive a zoom link.
